  1. Looking for a refrigerator repair person who can come fix our Frig. TIA
  2. Hi what do folks do about social security. Do they electronically deposit to Mexican bank accounts? The bank fees (both US and Mexican) add up quickly for ATM withdrawals. Monthly wires cost too much. TIA
  3. Hi My wall unit blows nicely but the air isn’t cold. I can hear the roof unit running. Anyone know of a good service person to come over and get it to blow cold air? thank you.
  4. Hi Looking for used mini Frig that works of course. Thank You!
  5. I haven’t seen any construction workers in the abandoned multi level housing project in San Antonio east of Walmart on the lakeside. Did they run out of money. The old signs say all units sold. What’s up?
  6. Moved away from California in July 2019. I will file state and federal taxes since I lived and worked in California until then. Thinking about 2020. Haven’t lived in California. So next year (in 2021) I will only file federal taxes, not state of California taxes. What is your opinion on this?? TIA
  7. Hi amigos I’d like to open a bank account at a Mexican bank. Of course, low or no fees, favorable exchange rate etc. Any recommendations? TIA
  8. I’ve managed on my own so far with feedback from folks. Now I want a Mexican Driver license. Has anyone successfully obtained one here recently without the paid help of LCS or an attorney? Where? How? Docs needed? Cost? Thank you!!
  9. I am in my first year (6th month) of my temporal. I plan on renewing for 3 more before the 12th month. Do I have to go to airport to extend my TIP also. I also plan on driving back to California then return to Ajijic in a vacation.
  10. Someone mentioned I have to take my US car back to the border each year and renew my TIP. Is that true? I thought my TIP is valid as long as my Residente Temporal is valid.
  11. For small things. Replace ceiling fan. Install bedroom door. Tighten bathroom faucet. Minor things.
  12. Where do folks either buy or have made curtains or drapes. Not the standard length. I understand there’s a place across from GDL Farmacia. Phone numbers would help. TIA
  13. I am moving to a new house. There are 3 wires that appear to run into the house from the outside. I think they are Ethernet cables. They look like a phone line wire but are bigger/wider. Then there’s one that looks like a TV coaxial cable like cable TV. I also have an Infinitum Telmex box. I think it’s a router. It broadcasts a WiFi signal. Someone said I need a modem. Telmex says they don’t provide equipment. My Telmex router is missing the wire to plug it into the electric wall outlet but they don’t provide them so I’ve been looking for one. Not sure what I need or what to connect so I have WiFi. I stream TV so I need WiFi. I need to buy a telephone also to make calls Anyone available to help? So confused.
  14. When our house closed in July we drove to the consulate in GDL. They have a US notary there that speaks English. Check their website. No appointment needed. Just be persistent at the entrance. Like all US government offices, no one knows anything. Be persistent. The notary is there. $50.00 US
